we're worried about. we worry that people who don't want to invest in education use anything as an excuse to not do it. we actually had not seen any decreases in hours because of the health care law. we know that across the bargaining table, some of the employers have said it. what i'm saying sir is that we have raised some of these issues before. we know they can be solved. at the end of the day you need a functional congress to solve it. >> you say there's no shame in the mid course correction. if you were managing this, would you have delayed it? >> there are certain things that have been delayed. you make certain adjustments given what is going on. >> you think it was a mistake to pursue this given the problems they knew were there? >> you know, at one point or another, you have to dive in. you dive in but you actually end up like they've done in certain ways. you stop the stakes. you stop the penalties. you have to actually dive in. look, i know this is not the topic today. we've said the same thing about the common core. dive into it but stop the high stake testings. st
.net, which they call an educational site. >> you can play for free on those sites and learn about how to play poker. >> and "dot net" can advertise 'cause there's no money. it's not gambling. >> correct. >> but with identical logos and brand names, the obvious goal is to draw people from the free "dot net" site over to the real gambling "dot com" site. so, i mean, any idiot knows that if you want to gamble, you just go anybody knows that. even i know that. all of it seems such a sham, all of it. >> they are certainly spending a lot of money to educate people about the game of poker. >> many of those being educated are kids, and many of them then try to play for real. jon kyl says that's the biggest danger in online gambling. >> our kids have access to the internet. they're frequently not supervised. and you can run up a huge debt on your folks' credit card very, very quickly. >> to test that, we gave alex hartman, the 16-year-old son of this story's producer, his dad's mastercard. why can't a 16-year-old just pretend he is his father? you know, he can go online.
$500 million to pay for education programs. a top senate leader says he will push it. in colorado voters head to the polls tomorrow to decide whether to hike taxes especially on those making $75,000 or more. i guess that counts for rich in colorado. that money is slated for education but the calls for hikes on the federal level that have grown broader. if we look at that the billionaire calls the wealthy this is what he writes. he says you did not kbild that. you did not create that wave. you road it. and now it's time to share your good fortune by paying higher taxes. capital gains should be taxed the same rate as ordinary income. opponents point out that the top -- pay 40% of state income taxes. now tax and capital gains right now looks about as unlikely as a duck landing in a pile of gold coins. >> i think most people agree that the rich should pay their fair share. but i wonder why they think they aren't already. somebody making a mm dollar they want more than 60%. >> it just got a bit tougher for banks as well. stay with us. jackie: there are plenty of thing
money. my job is not just to entertain, but to educate you. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. only a few times in my career have i seen old line companies, actual, ancient work horse stocks and resource companies put on major moves on very little information or catalyst. something we saw today in a session, the dow gained, the nasdaq climbed .31%. once in motion, these old line stocks, kind of like fabulous running backs, more touches when everyone else gets tired in the 4th quarter, they will not quit. let me tell you about ten remarkable stocks, all have been rerated. that's the term from wall street, as different, better stories in the last few months, not much fanfare. these are companies that have been transformed. i'll list them in alphabetical order, so as not to hurt anybody's feelings. back in june, best buy was trading at $26 bucks. that was a remarkable run in january. most people figure best buy had to collapse from exhaustion of such a move. i mean it's retail. it has been shot by multiple attacks by washington. we all know income growth has been stagnant. employment, while creepi
'm cramer. welcome to "mad money." welcome to cramerica. my job is to educate you. so call me. as november begins we have to take heart in a unique statistic. in the last 50 years there's only been four other times when the s&p 500 was up more than 20% like it is this year. all four times the s&p not only preserved those gains but rallied right into the new year. i do not normally put that much stock in monthly historical data but if a pattern has been replicated 100% of the time i have to believe there's something to do it. that makes you want to. >> buy buy buy. >> when we have weakness even for part of the day. and then the nasdaq actually declining .06%. probably stuff to buy there. now, there are amazing companies reporting this weekend but those earnings will be dwarfed by two other events. the pricing of the twitter deal and friday's october non-form payroll report. let me tell you how you have to navigate these waters with those two. i like the company where i can be found at jim cramer wearing my dead mouse halloween outfit. so go there after the show, of course. it's going to be

. we started our enrollment cam p -- campaign not to enroll but to educate people in advance. i went to 200 cities. we had bus tours and advertisements. some of this has been driven by the fact they may not have had the budget, i don't know. i do think they have trouble in being able to educate people. they have a lot of challenges. the first one is the technical problem. they have to solve the technical problems or they're never going to get to the numbers. you are right, what really is at stake here isn't whether or not they got their web site fixed. it's whether the pooling process that they've developed is going to work. you have to have enough healthy, young people in this pool to make it affordable for. >> else. >> governor, i mean, it appears to be actually worse than that. according to the front page of "the washington post" today, in some states eight out of tn of the people that are signing up are on medicaid. if you continue that sort of ratio, it's simply going to be seen as an expansion of the entitlement program. and a huge divergence between those states that have opte
of the things that you would need to make an educated decision on whether it's right or not. but the idea lone that they have 35,000 employees. >> and google -- you know, schmidt has to succk up to the left because it's google that i think of. the great thing about this is you don't have to be mad at the president for this because it's bush anyway. he started it. the president was unable to stop it. >> this has nothing to do -- this is -- >> i would be somewhat -- if i wanted to slam the current administration, i could, but i don't want to. i don't have a problem with this. and the people that do have a problem with it, they don't really like president obama because they're basically an extension of bush's -- >> at this point you have some on the intelligence committee saying look, some of the stuff they told us they were doing, it's not true. some of the things they were not doing, they didn't tell us about. there's a select group of people who need to know. >> there's no business implication. i'm curious what you think of this. google is a u.hs.-based company. at&t may struggle to be able to

to entertain you but to educate and teach, call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. you're only as good as your most recent quarter in this game. nothing you've done before seems to matter. your whole body of work means nothing. it's worse than that. even though you may have made fortunes for your shareholders, even though you have oodles of cash in the bank, you're still unworthy in the eyes of some, and that's the story of apple which reported very good numbers after the close and after an initial dip, kind of hiccup, rallied nicely. frankly, i think it should have been up even more given the strength of the balance sheet and the improvement in gross margins which is what i was looking for. on a day when the dow drifted lower, nasdaq declined .08%. it was refreshing to see apple shake off the blues and power higher! >> house of pleasure. >> in a huge afterhours swing as the company made it clear, intraconference call, always wait for the conference calls, that things are, indeed, better than most expected. apple's earnings aren't the only ones that matter today. a dramatic run in all of the companies tha

and, you know, every bit of education and every opportunity and money to spare, being convicted and separated from their liberty in most instances, that has a deterrent effect on other folks. impossible to quantify but when you talk to people in the industry it's less than it used to be. thanks very much, guys. >> all right. that's the u.s. attorney, detailing the case against sac capital in a landmark settlement. almost 5 years in the making. let's get a comment from everybody. bethanie, want to go to you. there was a shot across the bow and he's done it before, mr. bharara has, he said sometimes greed is not good, sometimes blame worthy institutions should be accountable too and no unsti tution should rests easy in the belief it is too big to jail. a shot across the bow against some of the big banks out there perhaps. what do you think? >> really interesting comment. i noticed that too. and i couldn't tell if it was a warning sign to the big banks or if it is part of this sort of ongoing if you're a conspiracy theorist, attempt to deflect from the lack of prosecutions after th
to entertain but educate and teach. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. what makes for a healthy market? a market like today where the dow gained 24 points, s&p climbed .63%. ho hum positive. you know what i think makes for it? good breadth, means the stocks from many sectors are all going up. and you know what, they're going up for many different reasons. we can learn so much from the companies that are hitting all-time highs right now from the s&p 500. do you know that 5% of the s&p reached that fabulous mark today? when you consider the sectors they're coming from, yo uh can understand why this rally is, indeed, so powerful and keeps refueling. even as the s&p's in the rare position of being up more than 20% going into november and that hasn't happened all that often. this is a remarkable rally because of how many different kinds of companies are going up. perhaps most important, let's start with the ones that caught my eye. are the transports on the list? u.p.s. and fedex to start. think what happens to get these stocks to the all-tile highs. first, global commerce has to be improving. second
collapse. >> representative george miller of california is chairman of the house committee on education and labor and a staunch critic of the 401(k) industry, especially its practice of deducting more than a dozen undisclosed fees from its clients' 401(k) accounts. >> now you got a bunch of economic wizards jumping in and taking money out of your retirement plan, and they don't want to tell you how much. you can't decipher it in simple english, and they're not interested in disclosing it or having any transparency about it. >> and most of the people that look at their 401(k)s have no idea that these fees are being taken out. >> no. where would you find it? where would you find these fees in this prospectus? you can look on any page you want, and when you're all done reading it--and you will find some of the fees and the commissions here, but you won't find them all, and i bet you won't find half of them. >> there are legal fees, trustee fees, transactional fees, stewardship fees, bookkeeping fees, finders' fees, and the list goes on and on. miller's committee has heard testimony that th

still remember the crisis. i think we've done a very good job educating our investors. they understand the bull market will lag a little bit. but this year with only 55% in equities, we've managed to catch about 80% of the upside in the index and the absolute performance still very respectable, you know, more than 16%. >> is it a lot harder to find values, though, when the stock markets have risen so rapidly? >> it is. and we are raising cash at this point. we believe that all asset classes tend to be fairly expensive today. it's probably towards the late inning of a great bull market. i wouldn't call this a bubble yet because we don't see disruptions. we see different asset classes or being 10%, 15% overvalued, but it's not crazy and we don't see the dislocations you usually see with bubbles. we do see easy credits in the high yield bull market. we see more in flows into equities. we see variations. it's time to be a bit more cautious. there are still opportunities out there. >> we have president plosser with us. we've been talking about the fed strategy. is it impossible to fight the
of life and by providing knowledge and education and the technology. >> while cracking down on elicit behavior? that is the end of the sentence, i would hope. >> that is one, for sure. but i would start with another point. >> i don't know if we have time. >> if we talk about behavior, how about the fact that the change in weight in america cost the united states $1 trillion a year. how are we going to get people to focus on personal responsibility for their own health? >> it sounds like it is changing and it is going to create exciting opportunities. mike milken, francis collins, thank you for your time this morning >>> obama supporters would argue that the administration is known for being tech savvy. how did health end up with so many problems. the former while house chief technology officer will join us live. >>> is twitter really worth all the hype? find out what investors have to say when "squawk on the street" comes right back. little old fashioned. i love chalk and erasers. but change is coming. all my students have the brand new surface. it has the new windows and com
purchase from the education segment and now they have new products coming out. that should help that line better. and obviously the iphones were a little bit better than a lot of people expected. overall, a good report. >> keep asking everyone this. is it a momentum stock or a value stock? >> for me, it's whatever term you want to put on it. if they can give more evidence they can actually return to growth in 2014, it's going to catch buyers. i guess that might be more of a value stock than anything. but at, you know, less than 12 times earnings and the expectation has now risen. ever since this 5c and 5s launch, negative about the 5c, positive about the 5s, but the earnings estimate has gone up a dollar since the products were announced. that should get a higher multiple. >> yeah, hard to get -- it's hard to be both a value and a growth stock, i guess. because if this company starts growing again, if it starts having higher earnings year after year, the multi -- it's going to be just with ha below market multiple, it's going to be a $1 trillion stock. >> listen, six months ago, people th
